What Happens When Churches Show Up and Stay Put
WHO: José Humphreys, pastor of Hope Covenant Church in NYC.
HE SAYS: “If the church is to show up as God’s experiment, a more deliberate discipleship in the form of personal and communal pilgrimage will better shape the community.”
THE BIG IDEA: By identifying a framework of discipleship, churches can have a lifelong impact on their communities.
Part 1, “Show Up,” provides a biblical and theological narrative of what the church should be. Part 2, “Stay Put,” shares stories of churches that stay put in their neighborhoods. The book concludes with Part 3, “See.” These four chapters examines the church from a different point of view, exploring making the most of life’s moments.
